    Will a night light discourage G-bears?

    I met a veteran hunter moose hunting in 5-15 in 2018 who said he kept a bright light on all night outside his trailer to keep grizzly bears away.

    Seeing as I was camping alone in a wall tent, I thought that sounded like a good idea but I didn't have one.

    Does that really work?

    If the light is always on I would think they would just get used to it. I know black bear and deer do. Don't care at all after a night or 2.

    I picked up one of those solar charged motion lights at Costco. Easy to install and think it will startle more animals away with the sudden change. Not saying it does, I just tell myself it will. Worst case scenario I can see what is out there easier and makes late night washroom trips a lot more comfortable.
    I don't shoot innocent animals... Just the ones that look guilty!

    no. There are only 2 things that interest them...food and sex. If your lucky it's only your peanut butter sandwiches they get.

    Slugs in the face will discourage them.

    Since he hasn't been killed by a grizzly, then it obviously works. Trust the science.

    My old Indian buddy has two sayings.
    A tree will never fall on a sleeping man and
    A grizzly bear will never eat a sleeping man.

    Seriously though, I drink sambuca or fireball before bed and that seems to keep them away too.
    Socialism eventually runs out of other people’s money.

    Hmm guided and hunted in 5..15 for many decades. .some serious anger management issues with the g bears in that area..lots of food and habitat..don't know why they are so contancourous. .but they are.
    No a light won't discourage them.
    When in tents we staked Bettis 120 pound wolf dogs one on each corner..slept like children.
    Cheers

    No but it will help show the silhouette, big teeth and those can openers.
